FOWC with Fandango — Flood

One thing we didn’t have to worry about on the boat was getting flooded out of our home. OK, we may have had flooded access to and from it, but the home itself rose with the water levels.
The marina had floodproofing though insomuch as the pontoons also rose with the water, and the gantries were so hinged that the angle changed with the water level. Only once were they completely horizontal, and we never had to go UP them to get to our boat.

The town suffered its worst flood in 2007. That was the year we were househunting in a tent and got flooded out on campsites more times than I care to remember. Having nowhere to call home at the time, we bought a small touring caravan until we finally found a property.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Living on a boat has such a romantic feel, when you’ve never done it.. But the no flooding thing is a definite plus!!
